Good points, Kurt. I was thinking how much extra work that was going to be, 'torturing' a ply deck on, (and assume you'd have to glue it to the hull? how's that ever gonna work?), well, you've cut to the chase.
If you haven't seen how a stripper goes together, take a look at Kurts site (don't recall but bet Kurt will chime in) or look at oneoceankayaks.com; lots of info, as well. Basically, you glue your deck together overf the forms, ensuring you don't glue the strips to either the hull, or the forms; fiberglass the outside, remove it from the forms, fiberglass the inside, then attach to the hull using strips of fiberglass/epoxy. Check the sites I've mentioned; I'm sure there are others here who will chime in, as well.
